He’s known as Batkid, but Miles Scott is also getting the star treatment. The five-year-old’s struggle with leukemia has been made into a documentary. In case you don’t remember, Scott touched even the coldest of hearts when he asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation to turn him into a superhero — Batman, specifically.
Filmmakers have been chronicling the story since then, and Batkid Begins, which is directed by Dana Nachman, not only shows his battle but also how thousands of people helped transform San Francisco into Gotham.
The trailer for the crowd-funded documentary was first screened on Sunday and includes interviews with his disbelieving parents, the people at Make-A-Wish and big names like composer Hans Zimmer.
Late last year — November 15, to be exact — Miles was not only given his own Batman costume but his very own Batmobile. On that awesome day, Batkid helped “save” the city from evil and captured The Joker.
The IndieGoGo campaign — which was created to raise funds to produce a soundtrack and special effects for the film — is halfway to its goal. For anyone who wants to contribute, you have until August 19.
